I’ve been to MAAD a couple of times and have always enjoyed the craftsy vibe. They have a regular fixture called the O.I.C Portrait Day, where you can register as a model and allow a group of artists to draw your portrait for 20 minutes. At the end of the session, you get to pick and choose from these drawings and buy the ones you like at $10 each. Or if nothing catches your fancy, you can just walk away.
I haven’t actually tried getting my portrait drawn there, but these unsold drawings from October look pretty awesome! I think I might give it a spin the next time I visit.
The next MAAD and O.I.C Portrait Day happens on 6th November at The Red Dot Traffic Museum. Remember to register if you would like to get your portraits done!
